We've seen the bionic Lego tortoise before, but where as that poor guy lost a limb, this little guy named Blade lost the use of all of his limbs. He is now able to scoot about with some Lego wheels that are attached to his underbelly.

Blade's owner, Iris Peste, noticed that he was having some difficulty getting around and took the little guy to Dr. Carsten Plishcke, who came up with the idea of popping him on some Lego wheels to aid him in getting around. Dr. Plishcke explains:

For people there are walkers, rollators or prostheses, but for animals there are no companies that produce something like that

Thankfully, the wheels are a temporary thing, as Dr. Plishcke expects Blade to recover the full use of his legs. Good thing these wheels detach!
